I have been a customer at tony's for many years. I I love their ice cream because they make it there and it contains real fruit and ingredients. They offer a great variety of flavors and you can get cones, shakes, sundaes or banana splits. They also have great burgers and sandwiches. If you are around in the early morning... More

Tony's is like an old fashioned IC parlor. Many flavors to choose from, their shakes are super thick. They do have good as well, but we didn't eat there on this visit. I highly recommend.

I love the selection of flavors, and the milkshakes are wonderful. The grill is also great. I had a hot dog and it was delicious.

If you want the true flavor of hand made ice cream, go to Tony's. I have been eating Tony's ice cream since I was a little girl and find that there is nothing to compare, not ColdStone, any of the high end grocery brands, NOTHING comes close to their excellence. Family friendly and true to their roots of home town... More

Service here is wonderful! Food is great. There is something for every taste. Hot dogs, hamburgers and other creative sandwiches. And no other ice cream store can hold a candle to Tony`s. Try it if you are in the area. Nothing fancy, just good food, good service and awesome ice cream!

Go to Tony's for a delicious sandwich or have a refreshing ice cream sundae. They have a great selection and always fast, friendly and efficient service. They have been in business for a very long time.
